Old Town Killarney
We made an early start on our journey down to County Kerry and tomorrow’s big trip to Skellig Michael (weather permitting). Leaving our suitcases at Kevin and Olivia’s, we packed a few clothes and some food and headed towards Killarney, driving through scenic countryside and using little villages before reaching Killarney, at place where we spend Father’s Day in 2011 with one of Tish’s cousin’s. Killarney was much as we remembered it however we hadn’t discovered the old part of Killarney during our last visit and this is where we would spend the next few hours including grabbing some lunch tucker in a a pub that had been converted from yet another Pharmacy.

We eventually found the Killarney tourist information office and grabbed some maps and brochures for the local area and surrounds and then meandered around the old part of Killarney checking out the magnificent old buildings old village atmosphere. Withour car park ticket expiring at 2:35 pm we headed back to the car and commenced the Ring of Kerry heading for Port Magee. We grabbed some supplies from Cahersiveen, the small village near our Air BNB accommodation for the next two nights before heading to the ferry port

Before long, it was time to check into our Air BNB at around 5:30 pm but be left the front door ajar while loading our gear into the townhouse and wouldn’t you know it, the owners ginger cat came walzing in, walked uop the stair, and made hersel at home on our bed. After scrambled egg dinner tucker, we decided to stay in for the evening as rain and fog had descended during the early evening.
